The inCiTe™ micro-CT scanner from KA Imaging is the first commercial X-ray CT scanner that utilizes BrillianSe™, a patented high spatial resolution amorphous selenium (a-Se) detector technology exclusively developed by KA Imaging.

High spatial resolution and detection efficiency of BrillianSe™ x-ray camera enables rapid phase contrast imaging and conventional micro-CT in a portable benchtop system.

Fields that can benefit from this technology include non-destructive testing (NDT), additive manufacturing, electronics, agriculture, geology, preclinical imaging, and specimen radiography.
